Junk Free June is all about giving up processed foods and drinks for the month of June and getting friends and family to sponsor you.
What we eat and drink may cause around 30 percent of cancers in industrialised countries - making diet second only to tobacco as, in theory, a preventable cause of cancer. No particular foods or eating patterns are guaranteed to prevent cancer; however, some foods and eating patterns can reduce your risk.
Junk Free June is a non profit organisation founded by the New Zealand cancer society.
Analysis of global research shows that about a third of the most common cancers can be prevented through a nutritious diet, maintaining a healthy weight and regular physical activity – World Cancer Research Fund International.
The Shamoun crew did exceptionally well and we raised $625 Kiwi Dollars which our management met, cent for cent, which means we raised over $1200 Kiwi Dollars for the New Zealand cancer society.
